I have no idea how to stumble across it! I'll see about adding it to dreams and designs. I'm not up to speed on their structure either.

 
It looks like the blog area functions the same as the discussion forums, you just click on blogs instead of discussion forums. And if you click on recent posts, it displays both blog posts and forum posts. All good!
 
I'm looking forward to seeing more!

A photo of my scratchbuilt Albion shed model for my Store Street switching layout. It's not exact but I think it captures the feel.

Thanks!
 
I've been working on a model of Capital Iron and wanted to share my progress.

Updated picture of my HO scale model of Capital Iron now that I have finished primary painting and assembly. It's neither an exact scale model (I estimated the dimensions from photos) nor does it likely correspond exactly to the appearance in any one era as I somewhat split the difference between the fairly plain appearance during my era (1940's) and its showier present day appearance. Regardless, I'm really happy with it!
 
Thanks for reading!
Karl

That is awesome, I love it. So the 3d files you have created, would you ever share them?

I am interested in learning and preserving the history of the railway on Vancouver Island. With a lot of the History taken away we must work hard to insure our kids have the ability to watch and ride the rails we have left and enjoy seeing so much.

Hi vanislrailway, I would be happy to share the source file for my Capital Iron model with you and anyone else on this forum interested in it. This forum led me to this fantastic prototype and I have learned so much from the people here who have generously shared their photos and knowledge; I am happy to contribute back to this community of like-minded enthusiasts who created a 10-page thread on this short stretch of charismatic industrial trackage.
 
Details:  
If you are interested in these files, please send me a private message via the forum (please include an email address where you would like the files sent). I will share the files under a Creative Commons Attribution Non Commercial license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0/), which basically says you are free to use, share, and modify the file for non-commercial purposes if you give me credit. The files are a .SKP file (for viewing and modification in SketchUp, a free 3D CAD program) and a .DAE file, which is an export version of the CAD model for 3D printing (I used Shapeways but I'm sure there are other options). The files are very much "as is": the building front is a fairly robust 3D CAD model but the side walls 3D print well but may be difficult to modify in Sketchup without some substantial re-drawing. Note that the stonework at the bottom of the side walls is not 3D printed (and not in the files) but is a "small mixed cut interlocking stone" wall from Monster Model Works; similarly, the windows on the building sides are from Tichy. Everything requires fiddly painting.
